NEW RULES EASING ADA CLAIMS ARE ABOUT TO TAKE EFFECT

NEW RULES EASING ADA CLAIMS ARE ABOUT TO TAKE EFFECT
Across the country, labor and employment lawyers are scrambling to prepare their clients to comply with changes to the Americans With Disabilities Act that broaden the scope of who is covered under the law and make it easier for workers to bring claims against employers. Congress passed the ADA Amendments Act in 2008 — and it has been in effect since Jan. 1, 2009 — but the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published its final regulations and interpretations of the changes only on March 25. Since then, lawyers have issued a flood of client advisories and held webinars, seminars and client training sessions to prepare for a major change in employment disability law. The new regulations go into effect on May 24.
